Tonight: Food in our Neighborhoods: How healthy food is building stronger communities

On June 24, Elevation DC and Kaiser Permanente will host a panel discussion about how food can change communities.
Tonight, Elevation DC and Kaiser Permanente present Food in Our Neighborhoods: How Healthy Food is Building Stronger Communities in D.C., from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health.

A panel discussion will explore the relationship between healthy food and healthy communities. In D.C., local, organic, fresh food is increasingly available, from the corner store to the farmer's market. Even east of the river, where many neighborhoods have been classified as food deserts, the story is changing.

Moderated by food writer Mary Beth Albright, panelists Laine Cidlowski (DC Office of Planning), JuJu Harris (Arcadia Mobile Market) and Dr. Ted Eytan (Kaiser Permanente) will offer perspectives on how food access is changing along with D.C.'s neighborhoods, and discuss how food can be a crucial part of community development. They will discuss innovative solutions that are working, and areas where more work can still be done.

We'll be serving up free, healthy food and drinks along with the hearty discussion, so mark your calendars and come hungry.
